Now from $149 per night
The Westin Harbour Castle reaches toward the sky from its princely spot on the Toronto coastline, making everyone feel a bit special. And nothing says “royal treatment” like waking up to the unbeatable views (we recommend a lake view room) after serene sleep in the brand’s uber-comfy Westin Heavenly beds. A stroll through the revitalized waterfront district should fan your appetite, just in time for your reservation at Savoury, the hotel’s “chef’s table meets private dining” multicourse experience.

Five-star service for families is the name of the game at Hotel X Toronto, where varying room configurations set up with Apple TV and Google Chromecast make it easy for multigen clans to stay connected and have space for solo moments. Round-the-clock in-room dining means chow for all tastes, but it may be a Herculean task to pull the kids away from the giant Play Centre full of toys, crafts, books, video game consoles – and even a sports court.

There’s no sour edge to the suites at this downtown Toronto property, connected to the city’s PATH – a mostly underground pedestrian walkway network that spans more than 19mi (30km). After a heavenly rest upon pillowtop mattresses, amble to Ripley’s Aquarium to gape at sand tiger sharks, moon jellies, and a giant Pacific octopus, before taking in an evening show at Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre Centre, a nearly 110-year-old double-decker theater with Edwardian details.

Parents can toast in Great Gatsby style at Clockwork Champagne & Cocktails, then the whole gang can enjoy modern Canadian fare with traditional French touches at Reign. The restaurant’s attached bakery will delight kiddos in the morning with fresh-made croissants and muffins, while the adults can perk up with artisan-roasted coffee.

    At One King West, families can choose between handsome, homey Historic Suites, set in the 1914-built Dominion Bank Building, or Tower Suites, housed in the Silver Tower, one of the tallest residential buildings in Canada. But no matter where you end up resting your noggin, we highly recommend sweetening things with a goodie from the on-site Daily Ritual Cafe. The chocolate-almond croissant is excellent whilst kombucha or a mango smoothie make delicious healthier options.
